NHMC Files Comments Before the Federal Election Commission (“FEC”) to Update Political Ad Disclosure Requirements

On May 25, 2018, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC), and Color Of Change filed comments addressing the FEC’s proposal to update its rules regarding disclosures for digital political ads.

The comments were drafted by Georgetown’s Institute for Public Representation and supported the FEC’s efforts to update disclosure requirements “in response to the dramatic changes in political advertising made possible by the internet and other digital technologies and devices.” Additionally, the comments highlighted how “people of color have been the targets of malicious voter suppression efforts that take advantage of the fact that current FEC disclosure rules are obsolete.”
